You know that you’re working with some pretty extraordinary musicians and artists when you can call them at the last minute to come play with you for your birthday show and they show up with bells on and ready to rock.
This is exactly the case when it comes to my band Color Me Blessed, which consists of powerhouse vocalist Yazmin Hernandez, percussionist extraordinaire Joshua Randy Abeyta, and master of all things bass, Lauren Gale. What really sets the pros apart from the rest is the fact that these amazing people showed up to play without knowing a single note or chord at the last minute and made my birthday set at The Soiled Dove Underground one of the most amazing shows I’ve ever had the joy of playing. We had one rehearsal in the green room before hitting the stage and I must admit that I was quite impressed at how quickly these beautiful humans took to the music.
So with the first official Melissa Ivey and Color Me Blessed show under our belt without even having a proper band practice first, we set out to gather together and practice as a unit this past Monday and it was nothing short of magical. We happily engaged in creative space together and rehearsed some of my favorite songs to share at an upcoming show.
It’s interesting how the Universe moves when it conspires on your behalf. The mere fact that I was able to co-create the perfect backing band for my music practically overnight is something special. This is a team of amazing artists creating this local super group and we are ready to take on the world with our sass and our fire.
